I cannot install timer-applet as it tells me it depends on...

timer-applet: Depends: python-gnomeapplet which is a virtual package.
Depends: gnome-audio but it is not going to be installed.

What can I do to get this applet installed?

I really can't understand what in the world this broken package is doing in two Ubuntu repos (oneiric and precise) since python-gnomeapplet is long gone like Gnome 2 itself is...

As for the MATE version of this applet, it seems like no one have tried to port it yet, so you can't have it, sorry. :?

Just for others looking for a solution to this. I was also seeking timer-applet for a new install today of LMDE/MATE and found this thread.

My solution was to install the alarm-clock package which covers both the timer and alarm functions, in a different but workable way. It is not an "applet" but that's OK for me as I don't need it sitting in the panel when not in use (it does put an icon there when running). Unfortunately, it did not create a menu entry so I had to add a launcher for /usr/bin/alarmclock.

There is also an alarm-clock-applet package but I didn't try that one out. It wanted to install a number of other dependencies and I wanted to keep things slim.
